June 25, 2009Parliament prohibits FX lending and accepts restructuring rules
On 23, June Ukrainian Parliament has passed a bill #3585 which main official aim is to “overcome the consequences of financial crisis” how it is written in the name of draft. This document regulates some issues of debt restructuring procedure, restricts foreign currency lending and preliminary external debt repayments. The law was passed by the overwhelming majority of parliament and main disputable issues were solved in compromise way, therefore we anticipate that President will sign this law soon. The final version of bill that was passed still hasn’t been officially published, therefore in our analysis we rely on information available from open sources such as news postings, newspapers, authorities’ interviews and latest available versions of draft.
